ANOTHER Bradford primary school was forced to shut at the start of this week after two related children there tested positive for coronavirus.

St Paul's Church of England (CofE) Primary School, in Wibsey, had to close on Monday for key worker and vulnerable children, according to a parent who wished to remain anonymous.

Headteacher, Cath Palmer, confirmed the decision came after the school discovered two children, who had been attending, tested positive for COVID-19.

She said: "I can confirm that, following the advice of Public Health England, I have contacted the parents of children currently attending the school to alert them to the fact that two relatives who have been attending the school have tested positive for COVID-19.

"We have followed all the correct procedures advised by Public Health England.”

The anonymous parent said they were told that all key worker and vulnerable children, as well as some staff, needed to self-isolate.

They also were told that the school would remain closed on Tuesday for a deep clean, reopening to key worker and vulnerable children, as well as to year six, on Monday, June 15.

It comes after Thorpe Primary School, in Idle, had to close its doors to key worker and vulnerable children from Monday until the start of next week after a staff member tested positive for coronavirus.
